6:17pm
together when they come near the coast. that is not good when these storms come together at the same time. they phase up. that is a lot of energy coming together. that may happen in the middle of the week. tonight looks quite. some freeze warnings out. north winds at 2 to 7 miles an hour. in the city, it may stay above freezing but a few degrees. in the purple areas, it's very could well go below freezing. a freeze warning is in effect in the shaded counties. that includes all of the eastern shore. here's the forecast for tomorrow. we will warm up a little. we will see the sun and scattered clouds. the higher will be 50, similar to today. the wind on the bay will not be that strong. a 1 ft. chop on the open waters of the bay.
6:18pm

by the weekend, we dry out. >> mixed reviews to date. >> two entirely different games in 160-minute effort in cleveland. cleveland officially remains a factory of sadness. factory of sadness. we will hear from if you're living with moderate to severe crohn's disease, and it feels like your life revolves around your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira adalimumab. humira has been proven to work for adults who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief, and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis.
6:20pm
serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. get headed in a new direction. with humira, remission is possible. so, maybe you're trying to fiwell, let me give it a shot. if you're ok with marylanders spending five hundred and... fifty million a year gaming in other states, fair enough. but if you think we should keep that money here... add twelve thousand jobs, and generate millions for schools... well you should probably vote for question seven. because if it doesn't pass, all of this goes away. that's why the post called seven, common sense. but decide for yourself.

6:24pm
terps still hope to make the tournament without large selection. the greyhounds are winning in soccer. loyola won 2-1. congratulations to the greyhounds' who won the tournament. cannot leave without going back to saturday night. the head coach said the alabama crimson tide could go against nfl teams as favorites. the notion was so panned, he almost had a heart attack mocking him. the game last night is proof of that. it was a great college game. he performed at a high level when he had to against lsu. right before the half, the touchdown. 14-3, alabama up. not taking care of the ball. bob wills, -- fumbles, slu
